Often times it is difficult to fine good literature by atheists or for freethinkers, so I have compiled a little list of authors that I like. Please feel free to add your "two cents" being other authors that you like.

George H. Smith: wrote three great books

    Atheism: The Case Against God

    Why Atheism?

I'll skip the description of these. You can always go to Barnes and Noble.com or Amazon.com to get a description.

Thomas Paine: Although Paine was a deist, his book

is a must. It is a little slow at times, but I thought that it was great. It is a critque of christianty from a deist's point of view.

Dan Barker: Barker was an evangelist preacher and later became an atheist. His book

describe his journey through and after deconversion.
